Shot put bitch, shot put. Suck it.




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Nuh-uh!

Discus is where I draw the line at and even they are on the beefy side for me... What can I say, I like 'em slenderish Angel

Give me long jump, triple jump, high jump... And, let's not forget the best of'em all - the low jump Big Grin (@3:46, but the whole is brilliant. It's a brilliant show!)





But if we're talking purely about bodies - rowers have the best ones, without a doubt Yes

I voted "other" as in, the ability to distract the stupid public.

Most athletes are dumb as mud, and when they age out of their sport, they're done for.

Pretty good response Juv.
Don't know what number would be dumb as a rough % thoughConsider

Here in Australia at least a few of the "stars" have been heavy into drugs, alleged attacks on women etc. It seems this sort of stuff is an image maker rather than an image breaker in some circles, as these people often end up as popular in the media as hosts and the like.

As for the ladies I can't recall any of this egocentric buffoonery though.:Cool

That's a good point. I'm not aware of any research on professional athlete's intellects. From what I've heard in interviews, etc. it seems like many are not the sharpest minds out there.

Obviously, this is not a scientific assessment.

The US is very similar in this respect.
